The solid-phase synthesis of a range of novel heterocyclic scaffolds based on the thiophene ring system, including thienoindolizines and aryl-substituted thiophenes, is presented. Specifically, a sequential methodology for the decoration of thienoindolizine scaffolds has been developed. This method involves a highly efficient and diastereoselective intramolecular Pictet-Spengler reaction, a quantitative and regioselective bromination of the thiophene ring, and a final Suzuki cross-coupling with an arylboronic acid. Crude products were generally obtained in high purities (>90%). In addition, an investigation on the acidic and electronic effects governing the rate of the Pictet-Spengler reactions was performed. Finally, a range of substituted thiophenes was attached to solid supports and subjected to the regioselective bromination and Suzuki cross-coupling reactions, thus providing substituted thiophenes with high purities of crude products.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
